HELLO FORKERS!

Morning Panda

Your SIL's a lucky girl - she'd better get to hospital early for the second one!  A friend had her first quickly like that - the second one arrived in the foyer!!!

It's a mystery ....

I've been watching this mystery seedling grow into a plant in what I thought was a pot of nothing but compost where some cuttings had failed to take.  Now it has a flower.

Any ideas please folks?

Wasps

OH says there've been fewer wasps bothering the fruit at the farm shop this year.

I'd spread it over the garden now and fork it in in the spring.  Hopefully we'll get some sharp frosts this winter to kill the bugs and blights.

Blight spores  travel on the air, so what little there is in the soil will be negligible compared to what's in the air next year.  Keep plants well apart to allow air to flow through rather than stagnate around them.

By the way, your beans won't have had the same condition as the potatoes and tomatoes.

Wasps

We had quite a few earlier on - they were regular visitors to drink at the pond - and there have been a few around next door's apple tree - but looking back I think there have been fewer this year.  That's a shame 'cos they eat aphids.

We have seen a few hornets around as usual - we live near some old oak woodland so I think that's where they hang out. I love watching them.

Worries & troubles that affect Forum friends.

Lily - hope your friend's family have some better news soon - thinking of you and them.

Fishy - thinking of you and Mrs Fishy and family and hoping that things will soon get a lot better.

((hugs)) to all who have worries and cares or who just need a ((hug)).
